Mercedes-Benz Approves Elektron MULTISPOT MI-100control T Spot Welder

MADISON, Ind., April 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — Mercedes-Benz approves the
Elektron® MULTISPOT® MI-100control T resistance spot welder with C-pliers (model
MTC-6000) for use in performing approved spot welding on its vehicles around the
world. The approval comes as part of the OEM’s comprehensive re-evaluation and
testing of its partners’ equipment. All approved workshop equipment is listed in
Mercedes-Benz’s updated GSP Online Technics Information System (GOTIS).

The MI-100control T is designed for work on modern high-strength steels like
Boron, USIBOR, TRIP, TWIP and XIP. It features Elektron’s new TrueAutoMode(TM)
system, which automates the welding process to virtually eliminate operator
input. TrueAutoMode automatically detects which electrodes and arms are being
used, instead of relying on an operator to enter the information manually.
TrueAutoMode measures weld resistance approximately 1,000 times per second and
automatically adjusts current level, weld time and clamp pressure as needed for
changes in material composition and thickness or interference factors.
TrueAutoMode provides instant feedback to the technician if there’s a bad weld
and can log every weld.

“With the MI-100control T, technicians know they are getting a good weld, even
with varying surface conditions,” says Bob Holland, director of collision in
North and South America for Elektron parent company Vehicle Service Group (VSG).
“TrueAutoMode ensures uniform weld quality from start to finish, so a vehicle
can be returned to manufacturer specifications. That’s why OEMs like
Mercedes-Benz approve it for use on their vehicles. In fact, more OEMs worldwide
have tested and approved Elektron welders than any other brand. That means our
customers know Elektron equipment has been proven to work as expected.”

The MULTISPOT MI-100control T features the industry’s lightest transformer
pliers and longest lightweight cables, making it easy for technicians to work on
hard-to-reach areas. The welder has an electrode squeeze pressure of more than
900 psi for forging strong welds.
